9 / 16 + 1/2 = ?Step 1. In the addition of fractions with denominators must to be the same. As we can see the denominators are 16 and 2. We observe the 16 is 8 times larger than 2. Therefore, we must multiply 1/2 by 8 to get the same denominator.(1 * 8) / (2 * 8) = 8 / 16Step 2. Add the numerators and put them over the same denominator.9/16 + 8/16 = (9+8) / 16 = 17 / 16Step 3. Simplify the fractions. (If necessary)As you can see, 17/16 is in its most simple form. Therefore, 9/16 + 1/2 = 17/16
